Alright, I’m exaggerating, but I’m beyond excited that EggedOnBlog is getting a wider audience.
I’ve known about this for a while but didn’t want to write about it – partly out of a superstitious fear of jinxing it, but also because I wasn’t entirely sure it would actually happen.
Basically, ages ago, when I first started writing this blog, a journalist friend asked if she could mention it to an editor, as she thought it would make a great feature, and that I would be able to write it anonymously.
The editor was interested, and asked me to write a piece about my experiences of freezing my eggs. This Sunday, that piece is actually going to be in the Sunday Telegraph’s Stella magazine – and is already online here.
I slightly want to cry (and I’ve not even been injecting Gonal-f) – not only because the fact that anyone wanted to publish this story is validation that it is important to people other than me. But also because part of the reason I started writing this blog in the first place was because I wanted it to be a useful resource for people like me.
And hopefully this piece will mean that next time a woman freezes her eggs and Googles “Is it normal when…?” there’s a small chance that she’ll stumble across this, rather than smug Mumsnetters talking about how amazing their DH is being.
